right now, donald trump is losing. >> roger ailes? >> i think it's significant. and roger is, to me, i've known him since 1980, the best political operative. he knows how to win a debate, he knows how to win a presentation. he took george h.w. bush and i believe ailes was the most important person in that campaign but it's somewhat combustible to put trump and roger ailes in the same room and like pulling and adding more. >> they say there has nobody formal deal with him. >> there may not be a formal deal but it doesn't mean they don't talk. >> thank you, frank. republicans and democrats are ready for a fight over hillary clinton's e-mails. they received notes from the investigation that led to no charges against clinton. the candidate is promoting a
